MIDEM Music Spotlight: Valvet
Title: "The Sinner"
Listen: "The Sinner"
"The Sinner" by the Finnish indie rock band Valvet is a very satisfying "arena" rock ballad. Its got the lyrics, the sound, and the groove that sounds best played really loud. Although the song follows a solid rock/pop formula, it's always moving forward, bringing you to unexpected places – not an easy feat in this genre. Eppu Uutinen's vocals move from a smooth radio sound that young females would love to hints of satisfying metal guttural that is perfect: just enought to make you want more.
OK, OK. I admit that I also enjoyed looking at Valvet as much as I liked listening. Eppu Uutinen's got the rock god thing going on. I taped Uutinen’s photo … ah, I mean, I would have taped his photo to the ceiling of my bunk bed when I was 13 years old so that I could dream about him when I fell asleep at night … hey, isn’t that half the fun of rock and roll, after all?
Formed in 2004, Valvet is represented by Medianoche. They currently have two singles released and are working on a CD with producer Johnny Lee Michaels. They've certainly got the looks, here's hoping that they've got more songs like "The Sinner"!
The Come hear.Finland promotional CD is a partnership between MOKIA Nseries, Contra, d:centia, and Kuuko, with support from the Finnish Ministries of Trade and Industry, Education, Foreign Affairs, and the Finnish Cultural Foundation, the Finnish Performing Music Promotion Centre ESEK, and the Foundation for the Promotion of Finnish Music Luses. I obtained a copy at the Finnish Music Information Centre FIMIC booth.
